? >> jim, when you asked that question, i was thinking that i believed in what the great dr. martin luther king said in a great speech of his, that we should be judged not by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character. i believe that we should try to put an end to discrimination and bigotry wherever we find it, but it cannot be done in this situation. i do not think that the federal government should be discriminating against anybody. basically, that is what this does. we need to work to put an end to all of that without legislation, so to speak. >> gentlemen, thank you so much. that concludes the question and answer portion of the debate tonight. mr. casey won the coin toss for closing statement orders. he has elected to defer. he will take the ball to be in the second half. so, mr. smith, your closing statement goes first. >> jim, i would like to thank you, monica, vernon, and the league of women voters for having us here today. my wife and i have been very blessed. we have six daughters and a son. after our three biological daughters were pretty well grown, we adopted th

sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with
[unintelligible] and action news reporter vernon odem. moderating the debate, jim gardner. >> hello, this is the only broadcast debate in the 2012 senate race between bob casey and tom smith. here are the rules to which they have agreed for today's meeting. the format will include questions candidates from me and our panelists. a coin toss determines the podium position and order of questioning. candidates will have 90 seconds for closing statements. the candidates are here to speak about the issues that voters care about in this important campaign. gentleman, to prepare for this debate, i asked an acquaintance what he has gotten out of the campaign. after a moment or two of hesitation, he said -- well, there is this senator's zeroth thing, then there is this tea party prom thing going on. i asked him -- what else have you gotten out of the campaign? he stared at me and said that he could not really say. i would ask you two gentlemen if you think the campaign has reached the voters and if you are proud the -- proud of the way this campaign has gone. >> first of all, i want to thank
. three years later a really smart guy named jim milstein who was at the treasury department and responsible for the restructuring of a.i.g. he is a lawyer and investment banking restructuring kind of person. and he put out a proposal which has many common ingredients that we saw from the mortgage bankers association. here the emphasis is on a government agency, the federal mortgage insurance corporation, which authorizes, manages, regulates a series of security identifiesers and -- securitizers and the companies are not guaranteed, just the securities are. and the beauty of both proposals is that the technology and infrastructure and systems and human capital of the g.s.e.'s be wasted but compete with them. so i believe there's been some consensus around a proposal that is feasible and would work. one was issued by somebody who had an ax to ground, the mortgage bankers association, but milstein, coming from the treasury department, presumably his view is what is best for the economy but it is a very similar kinds of proposal in my estimation. and i wish that we could move ah
website, c-span.org. jim is in orlando, florida. he's on our line for independents. jim, you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: i'm optimistic after the election. i think that a lot of companies have been holding out hiring this year. i think it all comes back to the money. and when i say the money, a lot of the billionaires, when they see that their taxes are going from 14% to 36%, they're going to do whatever they can to make sure that the president looks bad as far as this year. when you look historically, the first quarter of the year is usually slow. we had a good first quarter. in the second two quarters, jobs have been anemic. i think the last two or three years, we slowly climbed out of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going
. now he says he wants to scrap off gem. in government you can't talk jim. now he wants to pool energy someplace. in government they scrapped energy supplies. now he wants to refer the big six to the competition. then he said he wouldn't do it because it would be wrong. i'm all in favor of switching but this is ridiculous. >> let's talk about my record as energy secretary. i want to thank him for the document last thursday. it reveals something very interesting mr. speaker. while i was the energy secretary, the average jewel fuel bill fell by 110 pounds. under him it's risen by 200 pounds. i'll compare my record to his any day. now let's go on look the part- time chancellor is giving advice again. and i'm coming to one of his favorite subject it is west coast main line. the former railway secretary now the northern ireland secretary told us about the franchise process. we've tested it very robustly and the former secretary of state of national development. she hasn't won the job but she's down the bench over there. she said the process is robust. we learned about floors in the process
. they shall walk and not >> i'm congressman jim mcgovern from massachusetts. when eleanor roosevelt died it was said that i've lost more than a friend, i've lost an inspiration and that's the way i feel today. deep down i know george mcgovern is in a better place. he's with eleanor and terri and steve. who knows, he may even be president. but for so many of us it is difficult to say goodbye. it was always comforting to know that he was around reminding us we can do better, making it seem possible we could end all wars, eliminate hunger and poverty and create a world where all god's children are respected valued and loved. in 1972 as a seventh grader in massachusetts i did what i could to elect him president of the united states which i remind you all he did win massachusetts. [applause] [applause] i was later an intern in his senate office and i had the privilege to work with the incredible staff he assembled in washington d.c. and south dakota, some of the finest people i have ever known. we weren't related it was just a co-incidence we both had the same last name. but people would tell
lead the entire year and looks to be in good shape to be the first republican governor since jim martin was elected in 1980. so it is shaping up as a very good republican year in the state. host: you've also got quite a contest going on in north carolina's 11th district. tell us about that. guest: we had -- let me jump back a little bit. in 2010 we had the first republican legislature since 1800's. and it came just as redistricting happened. it meant that you had new lines drawn for congressional districts. and so the -- with these new lines right now we have an 8/7 breakdown, 8 democrats, 7 republicans, i think that's right. no it's 7/6. but the republicans think they can pick up four seats because of the new district lines. if so that would be the biggest pick up of any state in the country. it seems there are certain to pick up two seats based on unfavorable new districts. democratic congressmen decided not to seek reelection brad miller in the 13th and in the 11th. and larry kissell in the 8th district in charlotte area and that goes down to the south carolina border is in a really
fraud as was revealed by james keene where he recorded the son of jim moran telling somebody how to commit of voter fraud. there are lots of dead people that are registered. that was the purpose of this to get the dead people off of the voter rolls. the process is going forward in virginia. everybody who registers in virginia gets a voter i.d.. it is a responsibility. a lot of people did not want to have anything to do with responsibility. host: thank you for the call. eight romney ryan white house, it could happen. -- a romney-biden white house, it could happen. the magic number is 270 electoral college votes to win the big prize. according to the web site, there are now 11 battleground states and statistically, 32 possibilities for up for grabs it states that could produce a 269 vote electoral college tight end. based on this site's simulated polls, the mathematical probability of a tie increasing almost fourfold in recent weeks. it runs the various scenarios of what happens if it goes to the u.s. house of representatives. this is a scenario where mitt romney and joe biden coul
president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virge whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. [applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a fliving economy where businesses are prossspering and people are getting pay checks not youring about extension of unemployment benefits. so folks there is a lot at stake five days from now. november 6 it is our generation's ran day view with dest any. i believe that the people of virginia here in the richmond area, the central virginia area, especially since we're here at doswell farms where the greatest history resource in all was born. we want to be like secretary i can't and you all are going to lead the way for a triple crown victory where we re-elect our leader eric cantor for a representative.

the republican team, so we got to be sure did jim it is also recollected. he is doing a great job in washington. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. we need josh mandel in washington. we need him now. president obama the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them like the stimulus package he said would result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obam

of ohio. 5:30 p.m. eastern. now to jim next in franklin, pennsylvania, republican. caller: i highly disagree with s estimatee -- his that the benghazi affair is not the october surprise. i really believe if the electric knew all -- if the electorate knew all the facts, how could a president, the secretary of state, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust su

of new hampshire with jim merrill.'first, a news update from c-span radio. if i could just begin with some of this distance about new hampshire or electoral votes. president obama won by 9%. abc news said that he did not just eek out a win, he dominated. he bested mccain by 54%-44%. given the economy is not as weak as in other states and the margin by which he won, how was the governor responding in the state of new hampshire? guest: let me make it clear, mitt romney will win next week. we have seen unemployment rise through the country as well as elsewhere, skyrocketing federal spending, government programs out of control. i think that is why you see today, especially between president obama. i think the voters of this state, what you are correct, unemployment has not been as tough. but there is anxiety. that is why they're looking at mitt romney closely. he has a plan, he has a record of success, this president does not. host: the undeclared make up 40%. how was he trying to appeal to them and what is internal polling showing how many of those voters he could get on election da

is a frame work that this bipartisan budget was with jim cooper and others on the democratic side of the aisle that was talking about a bipartisan budget that would put revenues on the table and spending cuts. simply because we don't know what the proposals are going to be. what i do know is that we face a fiscal cliff. only way we will revolve this problem is coming together and working together as i've done in this last 22 months. >> brad schneider how did you come up with the 70/30 split? >> look at what is a reasonable ratio. if you look at what we've had in this past congress. congress that has everything done to address the challenges we face. you have a ryan plan, not once but twice that my opponent voted for that continues to give the cuts to the most fortunate americans. to pay for that, it is asking seniors to take medicare, medicare guarantee to turn it into a voucher. it's taking students asking them to pay more, it's taking middle class putting average increase on their taxes. >> what you're saying, it's a general sense of fairness, 70/30 that you come up with. congre

of new hampshire with the senior adviser to the romney campaign. jim merrill, joining us from new hampshire. if i can begin with statistics -- the unemployment rate is 5.7%. president obama won by 9%. abc news says this -- he did not just eke out a win, he dominated. he carried every county in the state, besting mccain by 10 points. given the economy is not as weak as it is in other states, the margin by which he won in 2008, how is the governor responding in the state of new hampshire? guest: first of all, let me make it clear -- mitt romney will win new hampshire. the statistics he cited are accurate, but these last four years have been difficult not only for the people of new hampshire, but for the nation. we have seen unemployment rise, skyrocketing spending, government programs out of control. what you see today, the voters of this date, what you are correct that the unemployment rate has not been as tough as some of the other parts of the country, there is anxiety here. that is why they're looking at mid romney closely. he has a plan and this president does not. host: look a
of congress shouldn't get paid if they don't make appropriations. what does president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virginia whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. [applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a thriving economy where businesses are prospering and people are getting paychecks, not worrying about extension of unemployment benefits. so folks there is a lot at stake five days from now. november 6 it is our generation's rendezvous with destiny. i believe that the people of virginia here in the richmond area, the central virginia area, especially since we're here at doswell farms where the greatest history resource in all was born. we want to be like secretary i can't and you all are going to lead the way for a triple crown victory where we re-elect our leader eric cantor for a representative.

from jim on twitter -- uses direct democracy by any other name is mob rule. guest: direct democracy is a wonderful thing and it is a terrible thing. it came about and the united states back at the turn of the last century because state legislatures in many states were just terribly corrupt. there were owned by corporations. mainly the railroad industry and the mining industry in western states. citizens had no voice. they couldn't achieve the reforms they wanted to achieve because there were contrary to the interests of these corporations. that we are dictating to state legislators with the should be doing. the initiative process can about any way that allows citizens to go around government and to reforms when government wouldn't do it. i think it is still there for that. i think in the states that have the initiative process, and remember that is only 24 of them, voters did not want to get rid of the initiative process, even if they know that the is the process is sometimes corrected. and it is definitely vulnerable to big money and vulnerable to corruption and all of these things
